"I was interested in learning how to do a systematic review and meta-analysis. I´ve done several courses but couldn't evolve to a complete analysis due to the limitations of available software. Then I became aware of "Comprehensive Meta-Analysis". The program is very intuitive and the book "Introduction to Meta-Analysis" is the most objective I've ever read in this topic. I have recommended to those interested in starting training in systematic review to begin by this book and software."
